I saw the cutest photo from one of my Facebook friends and asked if I could copy it and share. At the time, I meant to add a funny caption. I didn’t realize he was actually driving this way! I thought the photo was taken when he was parked, but I see blurry background. I hope the person who let me share this photo will understand why I added a safety message rather than a funny caption.

Little Dog Driving Car

A dog allowed to ride in your lap while you drive might seem pretty darned cute, but it is as cute as it is dangerous. I know the person in this photo knows this and I know this is not an activity usually allowed. So please, no criticizing comments. This safety message is only intended to bring about awareness. Thank you Facebook friend (who shall remain anonymous) for letting me use the photo.

Maya Happy New Year

Hello 2014!

Happy New Year!

Before we bring in the new year, I want to take a look back at how we spent our holiday.

It was a long drive from Kansas to Texas and back. But it was great to see family again this holiday. We had a great time visiting my parents, seeing my brother and sister and my sister’s kids. You can see those photos of our visit on our other blog through the Wordless Wednesday blog hop hosted by Blog Paws. But first, check out these photos from our road trip:

Maya Pierson Car Kurgo Dec 2013

If Maya wasn’t wearing a dog seat belt, she’d be trying to come into the front seat.

“Are we there yet?”

When Maya finally realizes it is going to be a long car ride, she and Pierson cuddle together and go to sleep.

Maya and Pierson use each other as a pillow as they ride in the back seat of the car on our road trip.

More cuddling. Do you see their dog seat belts? Maya and Pierson can still lie down while wearing them.

Pierson Car December 2013 02

Maya and Pierson usually cuddle up together in the back seat of the car, but they have plenty of room for their own space too.

Our 2003 Toyota Camry car reached 88888 miles while on our road trip back from Texas to Kansas.

I really hoped to have the preview video for pet auto safety ready today, but I’m having a little trouble with some voice editing. I truly hope to have the preview video ready tomorrow, then perhaps episode 1 by Friday.

Since I don’t have the preview video ready yet, how about some funny dog memes of Maya & Pierson?

For the past several months, Maya, Pierson, and I have been working really hard on a fun new dog car adventure video. And we’re almost done! Here are some images from the upcoming video:

Dogs Seat Belt Car Video Clip

Maya & Pierson give some tips about pet travel safety. Both say to wear a dog seat belt. Another tip from Pierson to Maya, “Don’t lick the driver!”

Video Scene Pierson Dog Seat Belt

Pierson tells us why he wears a dog seat belt in the car even though he stays in his seat and doesn’t distract the driver.

Maya Dog Seat Belt Video Clip

Maya says it is important for dogs to keep their head and paws inside the car at all times.

These and other cute cartoons are in the video too:

Dog Distraction Clicking Cartoon

Like cell phones, dogs can be a dangerous distraction in the car.

Dog Distraction Driving Cartoon

Don’t allow your dog to sit in your lap when you drive!

Stop by our blog again soon to see a video preview and the finished video of Episode 1!

Dogs Maya & Clover

Maya is the light Lab on the left and Clover is the slightly darker yellow Lab on the right.

Dogs Clover & Pierson

Pierson gets along with Clover because Clover ignores him and Pierson doesn’t feel threatened by her.

This is our friend, Clover. She comes over to our house for a play date every once in a while. She is the only dog, besides Maya, that my other dog Pierson gets along with. Here is a photo of sweet Clover wearing her new Kurgo Tru-Fit dog seat belt:

Clover’s mom says she doesn’t mind wearing the dog seat belt.

Sunday, October 6th was the Dogtoberfest event held at South Park in Lawrence, Kansas. I was there as a vendor with a couple of tables of our pet travel supplies. Maya was there as well. Her job was to look cute and to occasionaly demonstrate her new ClickIt Utility dog car harness. Here is a photo I took of Maya and several other photos of the event:

Balloon Sculptures Dogtoberfest 2013

These balloon sculptures are awesome! Dogtoberfest had a kids section for face painting, kids crafts, and other fun activities. Where are the kids? This was taken before Dogtoberfest officially started.

Every couple of months, the Lawrence Humane Society has a little gathering called the Mutt Mixer. It is where people can come to bring their dogs and they get to hang around in the huge exercise pens with other dogs. The mixing part is the dogs with homes and their people get to meet dogs up for adoption. It’s a great socializing activity that Maya loves. I like it too, but I mostly hang out outside of the fenced area at a small table where I have the dog seat belts. I still get to socialize, though! :) Here are some of the photos from the event last Thrusday (the 26th).

On Sunday, Maya and I went to the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event at Crystal K9 in Lawrence, Kansas. I had one table there for our pet travel supplies and Maya came with me to show off her Kurgo Go-Tech dog safety seat belt. The event was the first one ever held by Crystal K9 so it was a small event. But it was a lot of fun. There were several enjoyable activities, some of which Maya got to participate in. And there were other local pet supply vendors. Here are some photos I took of the event:

Adoptable Dog Responsible Pet Owner's Day 2013

There were adoptable dogs at the event, including this sweet girl.

Berger Picard Responsible Pet Owner's Day

This is the Wynn Dixie dog breed, the Berger Picard. This adorable guy is about 5 months old. Just look at those ears!

English Setter Responsible Pet Owner's Day

This is the first English Setter I have ever seen in person. Isn’t he gorgeous?

Havanese Responsible Pet Owner's Day

I think this guy is a Havanese. Sorry, I can’t remember for certain. I met so many adorable dogs at the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event.

Keeshond Responsible Pet Owner's Day

I learned how to say Keeshond properly when I met this beautiful girl and her bigger fluffier brother at the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event.

Dog in Purse at the Responsible Pet Owner's Day

This little guy belongs to the exectutive director of the Lawrence Humane Society. He loves to stay in his purse and he was quite comfortable there too.

My Maya got in the way of a lot of photos at the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event.

Maya loved meeting all the dogs at the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event.

Maya won this dog dish in one of the activities at the event. The activity was a doggie version of musical chairs where the dog who took the longest to sit was out. Maya got 2nd place out of 10 dogs. I’m so proud!

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Responsible Pet Owner's Day

A Pembroke Welsh Corgi at the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event. He was with a Cardigan Welsh Corgi too, but I didn’t get a good photo.

Dog Giselle Dog Safety Seat Belt

I think this girl’s name is Giselle. She was adopted from the Lawrence Humane Society a few months ago. Here, she bought the Kurgo Go-Tech dog safety seat belt from me at the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event.

Cute Little Puppy Responsible Pet Owner's Day

This cute little girl is named Mia and she was at the Responsible Pet Owner’s Day event too. Isn’t she just the cutest little thing?

Do you ever wonder why we don’t post every day? Maybe we shouldn’t have put our CEC in charge of the work schedule.
